Description: This course examines representative Latin American films in four major cinematic industries focusing on key political and social moments, as well as on cinematic technique. Using a variety of theoretical approaches—psychoanalysis, auteurism, semiotics—we explore the relations between form and content, from melodrama to experimental cinema, from Third Cinema to the most recent trends in twenty-first century Argentina, Brazil, Cuba and Mexico. Emphasis on how film form articulates and rearticulates cultural and political identity. Weekly film screenings, readings, class discussions and writing assignments. Topics vary from semester to semester. Course taught in English; assignments written in Spanish for SP credit.
